The Assiniboine Community College women’s volleyball team shocked the conference last week when they upset the #1-ranked Providence University College Pilots 3-1 (25-17, 17-25, 25-11, 25-21). Leading the Cougars’ offensive attack was Erica Scott, a second year Left-side who has moved into power after spending most of last season hitting out of the offside. She put together a 21% efficiency rating on Friday, including 10 kills, 9 digs, 2 aces and 1 block.
“She is a versatile player, having started in the right side role last season and transitioned to left side this season as well as being the team’s back up setter” says ACC’s Head coach, Beth Clark.
The win gave the Cougars a huge 2 points, widening the gap between ACC and the last place U of W College Wesmen. But more importantly for the Cougars, it put them just two games back from Red River College who currently own the last playoff spot in the MCAC.
Coming off the high of last Friday’s win, the Cougars were unable to get a second W against the Pilots on Saturday, dropping the match 3-1 (19-25, 25-12, 25-11, 25-13). But again, Scott showed her versatility and wide skill set for the Cougars.
“The team started strong on Saturday taking the first set but lost their rhythm and ultimately lost 3-1” says Clark. “Erica started left side for the first three sets earning 7 kills (25% efficiency), 5 digs and adding 2 aces before being put in as setter in the final set of the game.”
Scott joined ACC to study Health Care Aide after graduating from Winnipeg’s Dakota Collegiate.
“Erica loves the sport and shows passion and grit on the court. She will do whatever she can and play whatever role the team needs her to”, adds Clark.
ACC will continue their pursuit of the MCAC playoffs tonight at 6pm when they are hosted by Canadian Mennonite University.
